Listen, we all know that at this point Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a sequel to Man of Steel basically in name only (and not even, frankly). It’s much more a prequel to Justice League, so the rumors about more and more superheroes potentially popping up makes sense, regardless of it they’re good ideas or not. The latest one is that Jason Momoa could be our Aquaman. I don’t have a strong opinion of the character beyond the fake movie franchise of his depicted in Entourage. You can see more about this rumor below, but should anything really surprise you at this point? No, I didn’t think so…
Here’s the story from The Wrap:
Make way Vinnie Chase, there’s a new Aquaman in town.
While Jason Momoa was cast in Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” several months ago, Warner Bros. refused to reveal his role in the superhero movie.
According to veteran scooper Drew McWeeny at HitFix, Momoa has been cast as Aquaman, though the studio and Momoa have yet to confirm his role.
Momoa’s role has been widely speculated as Aquaman for months, though the context of the character’s appearance remained unclear. Warner Bros. is using “Dawn of Justice” as a launchpad for its upcoming “Justice League” movie, and the studio plans to set the stage by introducing Aquaman to audiences in “Batman v Superman.”
Aquaman will reportedly be upset about what the World Engine in “Man of Steel” did to the Indian Ocean,” so he’ll be thirsty for revenge of some kind.
While Momoa may not have Aquaman’s typical blonde locks, he certainly has the physique, having played both Conan the Barbarian and Khal Drago on HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Represented by APA and KLWGN, he most recently starred in the Sundance Channel series “The Red Road.”
Look for Momoa’s Aquaman to team up with Ben Affleck‘s Batman, Henry Cavill‘s Superman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman when “Dawn of Justice” hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
